Things are continuing well, I think. Here's a little more of my progress as things go up a little higher on the vine. There's starting to appear to be more depth to the piece, and I plan on NOT tinting the background later if it can be at all avoided. I really want the background to be done completely with thread.
I have to be careful, though - I find myself clenching my teeth! Deep breath, Lisa, things are going fine. I keep checking the back to see that my tension (thread, that is) hasn't gone wrong while I was stitching.
Well, onward and upward!
(P.S. - sometime last night marked my 3000th visitor since Dec 11, when I put a counter on the blog. Thank you all so much for looking in on things here, and for taking the time to comment! -L)
